Has anyone heard of this before last night I had a mohaa cd in my CD/RW playing online, it worked fine. this morning with the cd in the same CD/RW (untouched) I started to play again only this time I used the CD rom drive to play Max Payne2, I heard a churning noise, before I could do anything I heard a bang, thinking it was a fuse or electrical fault I was quite surprised that I was still playing Max Payne. Then at the end of my playing session I tried to get mohaa out of the CD/RW but it wouldn't open. Took out CD/RW from computer to hear rattle rattle my disk had smashed inside CD/Rw, cleaned it out and thankfully it's working still but just wondering if anyone has heard of that before and what might have caused it

Many Thanks

Apparently this is a not unknown phenomena. Twas probably a faulty disk which the faster CD-ROMs caused to shatter. You can probably get a replacement disk from the supplier

He had a copy about 3 year's ago of Win 98 SE that someone had given him....

Put it into his 52x drive and a minute later me, my mate and someone else jumped right out of our skin's because the disc shattered and made a huge bang!

Just one of those thing's....
